Home - About Compsoc - About CompSoc


Welcome to the web home of the Durham University Computing Society. We exist to provide advice and support for the computing activities of our members; whether academic or non-academic, technical or non-technical. We have a library of useful resources, including CD-ROMs (Linux distributions and archives, freeware applications and more), reference books and manuals.

What we do

We run our own talks by either external speakers or our own members. Our talks page has a plan of future talks and an archive of previous talks. In the past we have ran workshop sessions such as "Introduction to Web Design" and "Beginning with Linux". Details and information from previous workshops are available on the workshops page. Let us know if there are any subjects you would like to be covered!

We freqently meet up in the pub during term time, usually a real ale pub. There's an active IRC channel. Also we meet up for a weekly lunch, usually at Varsity.

Getting in touch

We are always open to any suggestions members may have for talks and workshops, or any other ideas you may have. You can e-mail us at computing.society@durham.ac.uk and we also have a newsgroup at dur.dsu.computing-society.
